Hi,

I just start using WSUS 2016. What happen if on a server I update from online and after use WSUS... Is WSUS will be able to see the new updates installed and just push what is missing?

Thanks

Yes, it can seamlessly switch between the two

It will be fine. You can also update from online while being managed by WSUS. You should see the option if using full GUI on a server or workstation.

If you have approved all the updates in wsus, better go with wsus. If you are using wsus report to get the patch compliance this method is recommended because wsus identifies the patches installed through it for better reporting purpose . If the patch is installed through online wsus might show in your report as not applicable which would confuse .

point of clarification: WSUS does not ever PUSH updates the clients PULL updates
